This is my first stay here and won't be my last. It's an $18 cab ride from JFK. But now that I'm here, I see they have an airport shuttle hourly. You drive past a sketchy-looking piece of Rockaway Boulevard to get to this area with three inexpensive hotels and a Burger King. I arrived from JFK about 10 pm...

We were put in a basement room. The carpets in the hall way and room stunk. Not sure if it was some kind of wierd detergent that they use to clean or something else. Not located in a nice area.

All you need from an airport hotel, with a friendly shuttle service and a helpful driver. The room was a good standard, but paper plates and plastic cutlery at breakfast were not appreciated! In all, a good value airport hotel.

Like most people, we stayed here as it was close to JFK, and arrived in the evening and left after breakfast. We had a rental car, so didn't have to rely on the hotel shuttle. Renovation work was going on when we were there, and the place needs it, as it did not in general have a fresh and clean...

Don't stay at the Howard Johnson Hotel near the airport at JFK. The place seems to be a prison with all the security and the rooms are terrible.

If you need a decent hotel for 1 night close to JFK airport, this option is fine. Low rate, clean and spacious room. The noise however is disturbing, so don't count on a good night's sleep. Continental breakfast was decent.
